Too Much Assumption is Dangerous!
Learning that enrollment is now going on for school year 2010-2011, I immediately asked the report cards of my two boys who are incoming first year students. I received no reply but a blank stare. Sensing my anger to nearly burst, with a deep sigh, I went to their respective teachers to personally get the report cards, but to no avail. Wheew, what a day!
I thought my kids already have their report cards. I assumed too much. Equipped with no documents except my sincerity and willingness to compromise, I successfully enrolled my two boys at Notre Dame Academy. Thanks to the ever accommodating principal, and the teachers. I promised to submit the requirements before the end of May, 2010.
Lessons learned: Too much assumption is dangerous! Important or not, remember to follow-up issues, and keep documents in its proper place. Never let your kids do their own thing without you supervising it. Let them be responsible in everything they do.
